Turt

Wood Turtle
Glyptemys insculpta

Turt was brought to the Shaver’s Creek Nature Center in Pennsylvania for rehabilitation after being struck by a car. Unfortunately, due to her injuries she was unable to be released back into the wild. She arrived at the VINS Nature Center in 1984, and became our educational ambassador. VINS is lucky to have Turt! She helps to educate the public about the threats Wood Turtles and many other turtles face.
